Future Meetings

All meetings are free and you are invited to join and bring people along. Chatham House rules apply to the thoughts and ideas exchanged during the event. Presentation slides will be published after the event.

Meetings take place the last Thursday of the month in the afternoon. Afterwards, we will head to a nearby pub to continue the conversation.
